Aspen House Restaurant — Great Dining in the High Plains

Rawl­ins, Wyoming, is not the sort of place where you’d expect to find a great restau­rant, but we did.

The Aspen House restau­rant is in an old Vic­to­ri­an-style house built in 1905 that has been con­vert­ed into a restau­rant. The room we were in was prob­a­bly a par­lor or break­fast room, although it may have also been used by the doc­tor who built the house for his med­ical practice.

The restau­ran­t’s web­site says that 90% of their menu is made from scratch. See
Aspen House.

When I men­tioned my wife’s gar­lic aller­gy to our serv­er, she was able to check with the kitchen and while there were a few pro­teins that were mar­i­nat­ed in a gar­lic base, the shrimp alfre­do was made from scratch with­out gar­lic, as an alfre­do sauce is SUPPOSED to be made!

The por­tion was huge, an excel­lent value.

I had a Kore­an bar­be­cue sand­wich that was kind of like a stir-fry in a bun, with just enough heat to let you know it was there.

Sad­ly, we were too full to sam­ple the desserts, which were tempt­ing nonetheless.

Their address is 316 5th Street, Rawl­ins, WY. As their web­site proud­ly says, they serve their local com­mu­ni­ty and those who, like us, are trav­el­ling down I‑80. They serve them well!

    I would be drooling, even if I were not someone eating somewhat oddly this week as we pack up our kitchen. Thanks for sharing your experience, Mike.
